Walking in Marittime: Something Special

Alpi Marittime Park offers to "walking-lovers" a numberless series of itineraries.
Routes entering valleys, reaching dozens of lakes, climbing several summits and giving the opportunity to trek among the Park valleys and between Italy and France.
Walking in Marittime is something special. You can go along the medieval salt ways, the mule tracks of the ancient Royal Hunting Reserve, the paved military roads of the last war which are an engineering work of art. And you will be surrounded by an extraordinary environment rich in flora, fauna, and great views going from the Italian and French plains to the Mediterranean.
In Marittime there are itineraries for everyone, for families with children and for the most exacting expert hikers. There are several itineraries with trail markers indicating walking time and altitude, and many mountain huts to use as a destination, a rest or a stop point during your walks in Marittime.

The access for dogs in the protected area is subject to rules. Along the trails admitting the presence of pets, the use of leash is compulsory. Download the map

Alta Via dei Re - Tour of Marittime

Alta Via dei Re is the traverse in seven laps of Alpi Marittime Park touching the most important localities of the protected area: the panoramic points, the richest places in wildlife, the most beautiful lakes. Places "fit for a King": places linked in some way to the House of Savoy, whose members used to come and visit often Valle Gesso for almost one century. Their presence is witnessed by a rich heritage of buildings, hunting lodges, monuments and, above all, the thick network of roads, mule tracks, and trails along which Alta Via dei Re develops.

The itinerary, an alternative to the easier itinerary of GTA, in its complete version has some stretches (Brocan Pass, Passaggio dei Ghiacciai) developing on a bumpy and exposed road bottom, therefore it must be carried out with the adequate training and equipment.

Sant'Anna di Valdieri is accessible by bus from Cuneo (timetables: www.benese.it).
To return to the departure point, a shuttle bus service is available on demand: Tel. +39 0171 978068
